The Moroni surname is a patronymic form of the personal name Moro.

Moroni Early Origins



The surname Moroni was first found in Verona, a city in Venetia Italy capital of the province of Verona. This ancient city was the chief town of the Cenomani, a Gaulish tribe and became a Latin town in 89 B. C. It became part of Lombardy(568,) Frankish, Bartolmeo ruled and died in 1304. It is said to be the home of Romeo and Juliet. The city is rich in churches, museums, galleries, paintings, sculptures, statues and monuments. The cathedral was consecrated in 1187. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry. The family name has traced its way from Verona to Genoa, then to Milan, and thence to Mercia in Spain and thence Tortosa and Mallorca.

Moroni Spelling Variations



Italian surnames come in far more variations than the names of most other nationalities. Regional traditions and dialects are a decisive factor in this characteristi c. For example, northern names tend to end in "o", while southern in "i". Also important, but not unique to Italy, was the fact that before dictionaries and the printing press most scribes simply spelled words according to their sounds. The predictable result was an enormous number of spelling variations. The recorded spellings of Moroni include Moron, Moro, Morol, Moriles, Morona, Miron, Moroldi, Moroni, Moronati, Morrone, Morroni and many more.
